Helping you create a message the world can see.

Looking to jazz up your upcoming event but need ideas? Or do you just love our gorgeous Tyvek wristbands, but need a good reason to design some? Here are four awesome ideas for Tyvek bracelets to get you started:

1. Parties or Celebrations

Since clowns seem to be on the outs these days, one of the best ways to amp up a small (or large) party is to design your very own Tyvek bands for ultimate swag effect. Whether it’s for a sweet sixteen bash or a rowdy graduation party, these make for a colorful, and unique handout for everyone to wear at the shindig.

Choose from one of our templates and backgrounds, or design your own and upload that magic yourself! Planning for a small group? No problem. We have the lowest minimums anywhere; order just one wristband, if you like! (Invite a friend, though, because a solo party sounds sad.)

2. Concerts and Performances

Want to get the word out for an upcoming performance?  Whether you’re just promoting an event, or using Tyvek for entry tickets and identification, the possibilities are nonstop.

Tyvek bands can be used to great effect here, and they even double as tickets, with bar codes and sequential numbering offered as an option to add to your design.tyvek_concert2.a82e75e8a953 (1).png

Not for a big venue? That’s okay! These are great for local shows, school performances, a battle of the bands, or even little Rachel’s piano recital.

Creating the perfect design is half the fun!

3. Festivals and Fairs

Are you in charge of helping to run the local Rennesaince fair? Helping with the County Fair, or local city Festival? Do away with those ugly plain old bracelets and use Tyvek wristbands to make your ticket/entry bracelet into a piece of art. These make for a great advertisement along with a way to identify patrons.

We’ve got oodles of font and artwork options, so be sure to play around with your design until it really pops!

4. Fundraisers and Awareness

True to our roots, we offer excellent design options for putting on a fundraiser for just about anything, or to raise awareness in your community, or across the country. Unlimited options are at your disposal to strike the perfect chord for an ongoing fundraiser, or a one-night event. Make your message loud and clear!

Need them fast? We’ve got speedy production and shipping options available, and we’ll bend over backward to make your wristbands for your event on time. Still unclear? Check out our events page, shoot us an email, give us a call, or hit us up on social media. We’re always happy to chat!

Until next time!

Since 1949, the United States has observed Mental Health Awareness Month as a way to encourage education, awareness, and outreach resources across multiple outlets and organizations.RK_Green.pngThe oft-associated green ribbon serves as a reminder and a symbol of support for those suffering from mental illness, as well as a way for organizations to share a message of compassion and understanding for such conditions. Those organizations also serve as advocates to offer resources and to mitigate the stigma often tied to mental illness. From suicide prevention to many other causes, groups of people across the United States are working to further their causes.

We have made ribbons, wristbands, and keychains for many such occasions here at Reminderband. Thank you to all those who are working to help one another!

Today’s feature focuses on a writer whose books are part of a mission to stop bullying.

11-year-old Brenden Santos has published not one, but three books to date.

Says Santos, “I have a few missions in life and I have a campaign against bullying.” Santos began working on his three books at age ten and has since created a website, www.againstthebullying.com.

 

To help spread his message, Santos has distributed wristbands among the community, sharing the essence of his campaign “only one me”. He has been making some waves with his progress, and recently met and had dinner with the Lt. Governer of North Carolina.

Santos has big plans for the future of his anti-bullying campaign:

“I am trying to get bully awareness to be one day in August and one day in September because when school starts is when bullying is at its peak.
I want everyone to wear my wrist bands and look at them and remember there’s only one me and that means you.”

You can learn more about Brenden’s mission against bullying and his books at his website.

Santos plans to continue his efforts with his writing and sharing his mantra: “I hope that one day I can have enough money so that I can buy millions of wristbands as I would like to give them away free to everyone in the world so that not only children but also adults who get bullied can remember we all matter.”

We wish Brenden and his cause the very best of luck!

Alexis Teixeira was diagnosed with Lupus at age 14 and has fought for many years through testing and treatments to get proper help. When she was eventually married, she was currently receiving exams but developed preeclampsia after becoming pregnant with their daughter Gianna. Lupus played a part in her high-risk pregnancy and Gianna was born prematurely.

Thankfully, Gianna is doing quite well and is almost four-years-old. Alexis’ husband Luis saw the need for a great deal of awareness that Lupus just wasn’t getting; so he took matters into his own hands. Since his epiphany, Luis has used his rally driving career as a way to promote better awareness for Lupus. His race team Wicked Nasty Motorsports took to representing Lupus awareness (purple) in their team colors. This has allowed the whole family to share the message of awareness and the struggles of Lupus with many, many others.

“So often we overlook the loved ones of those suffering from Lupus who are living through the difficult experiences with them.”

Alexis says her husband’s efforts to raise awareness is a good example for the community, and that everyone can help.

Part of their campaign to raise awareness includes handing out Reminderband wristbands at the racing events, which have been designed with the Wicked Nasty Motorsports logo along with “Lupus Awareness”.

If you would like to learn more about Lupus, head over to lupus.org.

We wish Alexis and her family all the best and we thank them for sharing their story with us!

Abri was just eight years old when she was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma, on September 4, 2015. After a year of brutal treatment and limb salvage surgery, she is now six months in remission.

 

The folks behind supporting Abri, her Team Abri facebook page, and others affected by childhood cancer have designed their very own wristband to spread Abri’s message. This band shares the prayer that she prays every night:

We love Abri’s message and we wish her and all others facing the devastation of childhood cancer the best of luck!

Cancer survivor Ben Teller isn’t giving cancer the time of day. In fact his non profit makes that quite clear! Rightly named “Cuck Fancer” Teller’s foundation fundraises to cancer awareness.
When Teller found out he had cancer again he was already a two time cancer survivor and finishing up his fourth year at the University of California at Irvine. He came home to a voicemail from the doctor; unable to fathom what was coming next.

Teller and his mother listened to the recording that said, “Ben, we want you to know that we found something abnormal on your scan.”

Teller had already battled cancer at ages 18 and 21 and had his life stopped by Hodgkins Lymphoma; the possibility that finally living normal life might be taken away didn’t even cross his mind. Then the doctor told him they had found a mass, on the left side of his chest off of his heart. Teller recalls having things due for school; his mother sadly informing him he wouldn’t be going back. Teller took the news with stride and no one had yet to utter the word “cancer”; after he woke from his surgery his outlook changed.

Teller recalls the day of the surgery, “I was in really high spirits, I’m at the hospital, not worried about the anesthesia, I wake up…I have a tube in my chest, I’m not breathing on my own, I have a seven-inch scar on the side of my chest, I have a tube hanging out of me, and I don’t know what’s going on.  I have zero idea and I’m in so much pain, I can’t talk, I’m having an allergic reaction to the morphine, and it hits me, this is serious.  That’s when I realized that [the cancer] was going to do something to me physically, and that’s when it started to affect me mentally.” – (New University)

This was Teller’s turning point; the point at which his foundation began to blossom. He started by selling cancer bracelets and grew immensely from there. We at Reminderband are honored to be his wristband company of choice.

Teller said, “Well, as I was looking for companies to make my bracelets, the top hit on google with the best customer satisfaction was Reminderband. I was introduced to a man named Sean, who I still order my bracelets through today. We talked about what I wanted, and we sent a few samples back and forth and finally came up with the lime green with the white writing. It has been a huge hit amongst the cancer community. The color of my disease is lime green, so it was fitting that Reminderband had the perfect color to match. I have never had one problem with Reminderband and will continue to bring my business to them.”

Teller’s strength, ambition and goals for the future has brought him toe to toe with stars like Halle Berry, Will Ferrell and Ellen Degeneres. Teller has decided that cancer will not control his future. Reminderband greatly admires this survivor and send our love and support!

On Friday April 26th at 9:40am a sweet little boy, Ryker Warner, earned his angel wings and went to his Heavenly Father.

ImageImageImageImage

Ryker Warner was born on May 7th to Jason and Rachel Warner.  Diagnosed with Heterotaxy RAI (right atrial isomerism) with Asplenia and ventricular discordance at birth. It affects his heart and other organs. Ryker’s specific diagnosis is-
Heterotaxy RAI (right atrial isomerism) with Asplenia, Right Dominant AtrioVentrical Canal (AVC), Total Anomalous Pulmonary Vein Return (TAPVR), Double Outlet Right Ventricle (DORV), Left-Sided Pulmonary Vein Stinosis (PVS), & Ventricular Discordance.

At the second of many doctor appointments Jason and Rachel were given the option to terminate the pregnancy. Doctors said their baby would not have quality of life. They instantly declined the option and continued with the pregnancy knowing their lives would be changed forever.

Ryker spent most of his almost year of life in the hospital, going outside only three times. At just two weeks old Ryker underwent the first of many open heart surgeries. His family strived to make the best of this time and stay positive; Rachel’s blog filled with God and light.

Rachel often called Ryker her “miracle boy”. Here is an excerpt from one of her first blog posts, “He is such an AMAZING miracle boy & continues to inspire & teach everyone around him!”

The Warner’s will be celebrating Ryker’s life at the South Mountain Community Church (14216 Bangerter Pkwy Draper, UT 84020) Saturday May 4th at 11 AM. There will be a viewing at the same location Friday May 3rd from 6-9 PM.

They are also looking for a Videographer that would be willing to donate time for Ryker’s Celebration of Life on Saturday May 4th. They would also love to find someone willing to do a live streaming of the event for all of those unable to attend. Please contact Jen at 801-554-1170 with any suggestions.

You can read Ryker’s full story on their blog – http://miracleryker.blogspot.com/

Here is a video Rachel made of Ryker’s life.

Reminderband has found this story truly touching, we have created “Miracle Ryker” bands to commemorate his fight.

Wristbands are great motivators! They can be given as gifts to anyone you know is needing a little support or motivation in their lives, whether your eldest daughter is finishing that long haul through a degree program, your brother is running his longest marathon race yet, or a close friend is going through a difficult phase in her life.

As gifts, motivational wristbands are inspiring because they are both extremely thoughtful and very personalized. They show that you had the person receiving the gift in your deepest thoughts. Motivating custom made wristbands are additionally inspiring because of what they symbolize, and the powerful meanings they convey through simple words.

Wearing motivational wristbands are like having a constant, personalized, reminder around. Seeing the words on them help you to visualize what you are going for and will also encourage you to repeat them in your mind, like a personal mantra.

Choosing what to put on the motivational wristbands you want to give to a special friend or group of people can be relatively simple but may take some thought. Think about what you know about your friend/s – what motivates them? What words do you know would help them if they could hear it all the time. There are endless resources for ideas – famous quotes from empowering people or literature, inspiring words you’ve heard your same friend/s use to motivate themselves, inspiring quotations from past conversations, motivating phrases such as “get the goal” or “you’re a winner.” Alternatively you could consider having a special image debossed – an image that represents a source of motivation for your friend.

Motivational silicone bands will make great gifts for your friends or loved ones you know could use a little extra nudge. Reminderband’s bracelets are made of silicone – they are more durable than rubber and can be worn over and over again without deteriorating. Contact Reminderband to custom order your set of wristbands!
